9th Grade Journalism
posted by Anonymous .
Hi, I really need help with my lead. My teacher told me to redo it because I need to have the 5W's and 1 H. I followed that it has to be under 20-30 words but, about Online Journalism. I know it's really bad but, its so hard to have the 5W's and 1 H in 20-30 words about Online Journalism! Can someone please help me? Thanks in Advance!
My old lead: Online journalists use the internet to cover different types of news and they’re able to work from home or can travel to cover news. Online journalists requires 4-year degrees minimum.
I need to know more about what you want to write before I can help you with a lead.
Basically, I'm writing about a career in Journalism that has interested me which is Online Journalism. I have to write a whole "news story" which is just an essay about my chosen career. I have to have a lead to hook the reader, and that's my difficulty. I already have sources I used therefore the information I've used in my lead.
The specific career is a part time online news source reporter which is still Online Journalism.
How about a questing?
Who wouldn’t want a job in which she could work from home ...
(You finish and / or change it.)
The traditional 5-W lead is a news lead. You're looking for more of a feature lead with a gimmick that will hook the reader. Your original question indicates that your teacher wants a traditional news lead.
Thank you to both of you for your help!
